Mayo Chiki! – 07

「駆け落ちしよう」 (Kakeochi Shiyou)
“Let’s Run Away!”

I’ve been thinking this entire time, “Would there be any way for Konoe to slip into girl form while still maintaining the façade of being a male?” And coincidentally, it seems like an answer has been dropped into the palm of my hands. I’m sure everyone here loves Konoe dressed up as Suzutsuki’s male butler, but I’d love to see more of this.

But as I stand in to cover for Divine, I’m feeling pretty lucky that I happened to get the infamous beach episode. In a show that isn’t too shy to show off cleavage whenever possible, it was a rather adventurous episode. A cute Suzutsuki is cute, but a moaning Suzutsuki trying to tempt Jirou into doing naughty things just ramps the awkward (and erotic) level up to the max. She’s an instigator to all the different situations that Jirou gets caught up in, so I’m afraid that she’s going to get written off as someone solely there to shake up Jirou’s world. You could say I’m even starting to feel a little remorse for her since she’s obviously interested in Jirou — except she probably won’t do anything out of respect for Konoe.

Getting back on track, it’s amazing how smart some of these side characters are. Even though Usami was a bit off when guessing about Konoe’s true identity, her ability to pick apart and blow straight through Suzutsuki’s lies was quite impressive. Instead of getting caught up in Suzutsuki’s pace, I thought she was getting close to getting Suzutsuki to concede to her! But after a short cut to Jirou and Konoe mending yet another misunderstanding, it seems that it takes a lot more than some gusto to throw the mighty Suzutsuki off balance.

Even with breasts flying around everywhere this episode, it was all overshadowed by the preview for next week’s episode. Back during the RL Post for July, I remember rooting for Jirou and Konoe to become an item before the season ended. With the awkwardness of a first kiss out of the way, all that’s left is for Jirou and Konoe to share in some sort of deep, life-changing experience. And with the touchy subject of death and Konoe’s mom appearing next week, I have high expectations for lots of romantic scenes between the two.

But if it doesn’t happen, that’s okay too. Since there’s still a good amount of episodes left for things to… elope.

    Another great ep, I’m also hoping for some jirou x konoe next week.

    ps: konoe’s bathing suit was too damn cute <3

    • August 19, 2011 at 4:53 ampaulrenzo

      No legs though…I am disappoint.

  • August 19, 2011 at 3:27 amcybersteel

    Waiting for a full-harem date…

    • August 19, 2011 at 9:14 amlkaze

      date DATE. Ha . Usagi-chan is coming to the inn to sleep. I’m voting for harem training at the night with all 3 girl training him.

      • August 19, 2011 at 11:34 pmcybersteel

        As in a proper one where the guys, and girls, of the academy are aware of Baka Chiki hanging out with Konoe, Kanade, Usami, Kureha and that nekogirl.

      • August 20, 2011 at 12:21 pmlkaze

        Oh, you were looking pretty far ahead. But since I’m watching this show, my brain already thrown out the window. I’m only thinking how all of them staying in one inn and my fantasy just grew out of hand. The wildest one will be nude pillow fight.

  • August 19, 2011 at 3:27 ammac65

    Ah! The mandatory beach episode. Gotta love Japan.
    Even if a series is based on events which take place
    in Siberia, there’s always a beach episode of sorts…

    • August 19, 2011 at 3:30 ammac65

      I feel silly in that I picked the wrong tag for “mandatory beach” :(

    • August 19, 2011 at 3:35 amTakaii


  • August 19, 2011 at 3:43 amfragb85

    Kanade is as awesome as ever especially with all the opportunities at the beach to mock Jirou. Usami however, quickly shot up on my approval when she was able to see through Kanade’s BS.

  • August 19, 2011 at 3:51 amBreedo

    If Kanade keeps pickin on Usami she might drive Jirou and Usami closer together as co-miserators :P It’s like a survival game. At least Jirou isn’t the only one now she can deflect some heat lol. I’d like to see Usami x Jirou but I think Subaru needs him just cause no other guy would probably survive her misunderstadings. >.<

  • August 19, 2011 at 3:55 amCroos

    Im moving to kanade fandom

    • August 19, 2011 at 10:57 pmShirt

      Not phased by all that Usami rubbin’ eh? She’s puttin’ in her hours.. I dunno~

    • August 19, 2011 at 11:17 pmznail

      I feel a bit sorry for Kanade as she have kind of burned her credibility by being too playful. It doesn’t help that she is such a high class girl that he is likely to never even consider her seriously.

      • August 21, 2011 at 9:11 pmSilentcid

        Perhaps but that doesn’t stop him from looking at cleavage.

  • August 19, 2011 at 4:32 amx

    Great episode. That shark XD. What club were they in again? :P

    Usami will need to cut down on her conspiracy worries to get what is really going on.

    • August 19, 2011 at 9:36 amznail

      Handicraft club :P

      • August 19, 2011 at 9:45 amlkaze

        wow, thank god I never get into handicraft club in my school. I didn’t know we have to do so much stuff. I always thought it’s a club for none athletics person.

    • August 19, 2011 at 1:40 pmBreedo

      Speaking of that shark it seems there is indeed a creature Kureha is scared of (let alone would fight) after all! I guess that’s what the training was going to be water combat lol.
      She just wasn’t ready for you yet Mr.shark.

      • August 20, 2011 at 3:38 pmNegi Springfield

        At least the shark does not know Chinese kempo!

      • August 21, 2011 at 1:16 amx

        Well, we haven’t see the shark in action XD

  • August 19, 2011 at 5:10 amSeishun Otoko

    It’s great to see you picking up Mayo Chiki, Takaii
    I think you’re at your best when you’re blogging comedy & slice-of-life ;D
    Hoping there’s a chance someone will pick up IdolM@ster too

    • August 19, 2011 at 2:24 pmClick

      Although I kind of expected it to be at the bottom of the poll, Idolm@ster doesn’t look like it’ll be covered. Which is a real shame too, considering how surprisingly good it is and how sparse the RC audience for it is :P

      • August 19, 2011 at 7:17 pmNhelraios

        *crosses fingers*

        not IM@S ;_;

      • August 20, 2011 at 1:40 amClick

        Well, seeing as Blood-C has been taken off the Current Series list, I’m assuming it’s safe to say Idolm@ster survived. Group high five o/! Yeah!

  • August 19, 2011 at 5:12 amClick

    I really loved the parts with Usami and Kanade, especially the confrontation scene. Also the scenes with Konoe and her father were hilarious, especially when they started threatening to call the cops.

    • August 19, 2011 at 6:19 amcybersteel

      Is that Konoe’s father I see sniffing patsu???

      • August 19, 2011 at 8:24 amSerapita

        It is him…

      • August 19, 2011 at 9:23 amlkaze

        That #$%$%^ lolicon. I envy him.

  • August 19, 2011 at 6:49 amRex

    Funny how her breasts can change sizes that dramatically so fast.

    Well, thats anime physics for ya.

    • August 19, 2011 at 6:56 amcybersteel

      You’ve obviously never felt real breasts before.

      • August 19, 2011 at 9:33 amRickyMack

        sure i have, they feel like bags of sand.

      • August 19, 2011 at 9:42 amlkaze


        Are you sure those are not bag of sand put inside the bra?

      • August 19, 2011 at 1:53 pmRickyMack

    • August 19, 2011 at 7:34 amDeafvader

      Breasts is neither bone nor muscle. Unless it is really hard and firm, can’t think why it would be so. More of the shape than size change.

      • August 19, 2011 at 7:38 amcybersteel

        It’s 100% fats, glycogen etc

      • August 19, 2011 at 11:27 pmShirt

        Breasts are made in China.

    • August 19, 2011 at 9:35 amRickyMack

      if you want to question anime physics how about how Suzutsuki floated for a few seconds after jumping off the seat following this scene?

    • August 19, 2011 at 8:22 pmClick

      Once you’re in the brotherhood of 2D love, you’ll never need real girls again.

      • August 19, 2011 at 11:20 pmDer Fur Shur

        Agreed 2D girls FTW!

      • August 19, 2011 at 11:25 pmShirt

  • August 19, 2011 at 6:57 amryuzaki21

    kanade sure have grown in me this past episodes, dont know why.. hmm.

    • August 19, 2011 at 9:24 amlkaze

      She on a growing age.

  • August 19, 2011 at 7:11 amanonimous

    kanade was a bit more talkative and impressionable in this episode, love subaru!

    • August 19, 2011 at 7:39 amDeafvader

      Prefer Honda.
      Agreed though. Her dark aura comes out more but at least she treats jiro less of a punching bag and more if a human and friend. Starting to realize her own feelings too.

  • August 19, 2011 at 7:36 amDeafvader

    I’m guessing suzu’s parents are planning a marriage encounter but she would rather be with chiken so she plans an “elope”-tion.

  • August 19, 2011 at 7:48 amKentaiyoshimi

    Any episode with Kanade is a good episode. I’m liking her more and more.

    • August 19, 2011 at 8:27 amSerapita

      Definitely, I like how everyone, except maybe Masamune, in the show are trolled by her. She’s 60% of the reason I watch this show, the other 40% being Jirou and Subaru.

  • August 19, 2011 at 10:13 amlkaze

    I just saw the poll for dropping the show. But why is Mayo Chiki on the poll. I thought Takaii is blogging it?

  • August 19, 2011 at 10:36 amtomphile

    Subaru wins the internet today with her cuteness.

  • August 19, 2011 at 11:17 amr0llchan


  • August 19, 2011 at 11:18 amZzz…

    …so for those that can’t speak Japanese…

    …is there a sub out there that isn’t a blind idiot translation yet?

  • August 19, 2011 at 11:19 amznail

    Subaru’s dad sucks though. He should know very well about the deal his daughter have and his stupidity this episode was on a retarded level.

    • August 19, 2011 at 12:01 pmLockon Stratos

      That is what happens when your dad is Ali Al-Saachez (both voiced by Keiji Fujiwara).

      • August 19, 2011 at 3:02 pmRickyMack

        and Maes Hughes, also voiced by Keiji Fujiwara

      • September 17, 2011 at 4:07 amAnon123

        and Holland, also voiced by Keiji Fujiwara

  • August 19, 2011 at 12:10 pmTrombe

    I was waiting for those amazing full ss from divine >:

  • August 19, 2011 at 12:21 pmrasone0104

    good episode overall
    -on a side note i kinda hate who ever changed their names when they subbed this show this week

    • August 19, 2011 at 1:28 pmfragb85

      Is it so hard to recognize an obvious troll sub?

      • August 19, 2011 at 3:59 pmAndré

        Yeah, it was a troll sub, but then what? That was saying that he hated what the fansub did with the episode, and he’s is 100% right, I agree with him.

      • August 21, 2011 at 5:28 pmlkaze

        I hate that fella, I wanted to wash my hand and only get a trusted fansub. But then again having a fansub available so much earlier than the rest is very tempting. VERY Tempting indeed.

    • August 20, 2011 at 12:57 amP Ko

      Well, if you want people to never download your work again, trolling with subs is one way to do it.

      • August 20, 2011 at 1:37 amx

        This is why troll subs tend to change their names often.

  • August 19, 2011 at 7:23 pmNhelraios

    Subaru aside, I’m liking the cat girl. She needs more screentime!!

  • August 19, 2011 at 10:04 pmKiria

    I’m hoping for some Jirou x Konoe next week too. I actually like all the girls in this series, whereas in others I just sort of picked one girl and stuck to her, but choosing Konoe from this cast was almost tough!

    Anyone know how long the series will be??

  • August 19, 2011 at 10:31 pmCely_belly

    Great post! Looks like a funny anime :)

  • August 20, 2011 at 4:21 amSnicket

    The harem is now fully assembled , now time for the s*** storm that will eventually comence.

  • August 20, 2011 at 11:52 amSilivious

    Great episode, lol. I wish that BT would translate the novels though. -.-

    • August 20, 2011 at 12:24 pmlkaze

      I wish they finish Zero no Tsukaima, the final volume is coming out soon. So is the Final Season(4th season) ;)


      • August 21, 2011 at 9:05 pmhaseo0408

        I knew Zero no Tsukaima was ending next year but I din´t find anything about a 4th season. Where did you find that information?. I love the series so I was hoping to see the incoming ending animated.

      • August 21, 2011 at 9:18 pmlkaze

        Behold the final season. It seem like the final season of Zero no Tsukaima will come out together with the ending of light novel. Not only that Sakugan no shana season 3 is coming next season too. Ohh I can’t wait for Divine to do the next season anime post. In fact I’m guessing they are doing it right now based on my awesome deduction.
        (Not that awesome just the fact that Scared Seven haven’t been blog before the fansub is out and maybe because Enzo in his timely blogging is slow on hanasaku too)

        P.S. Forgive me if my deduction is wrong.

      • August 21, 2011 at 10:16 pmhaseo0408

        This is the proof that God exist!. Thanks for the information, you just made me a really happy man, all that is left is to pray that J.C. Staff don´t screw up the finale of Shana and Luis because I´ll have their heads if they do so.

  • August 21, 2011 at 9:02 pmhaseo0408

    Now we have two girls completely inlove with Jirou, all the pieces are set for Kanade to start some of her best sadistic fun. I can´t count Kanade because I feel everything she does is to gain some twisted fun and has no real feelings for Jirou. By the way, I never thought there was someone besides Jirou who could see through her lies, Masamune has to watch her back from now on.

  • August 23, 2011 at 2:33 amPera

    Something that I wonder is what Suzutsuki see’s in Jirou. Jirou is a great guy, but what has he done that would attract her attention.
    I would guess that both Suzutsuki and Jirou have met in the past, because Jirou isn’t a guy girls would fall for without knowing him. But I’m excited watching how this anime closes up.

  • August 25, 2011 at 4:08 amGhostalker

    Watching this anime makes me want to re-watch Infinite Stratos again for some reason. Is it because of Char having some kind of similarity with Subaru?

    Hi there, I found your blog by way of Google while searching for a similar subject, your web site got here up, it seems great. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
